#LitMagLove Giveaway!

Our magazine collection includes, among other periodicals, a selection of literary magazines. The writers among us know how important literary magazines are to our reading culture. For writers, literary magazines are often where they cut their teeth and where they are first noticed by readers. Even for established or famous authors, literary magazines offer an opportunity to practice their craft in a different setting and in front of a different audience. For readers, literary magazines are a source of surprise and discovery, a chance to get in on the ground floor of an author, genre, or movement. They also provide an opportunity to read the weird, experimental, and innovative work you don’t see much of in mainstream publishing.

Publishers send samples of new lit mags on a regular basis to make us aware of what is available in the hope that we will carry them. Space limits what we can offer though we do try to rotate various titles in and out. We are still left with a large collection of individual titles which we would like to share with you.

We'll be giving away two sets of 6 (six!) lit mags each. For your chance to win, just tweet why you love lit mags to @PorterSqBooks with the hashtag #LitMagLove. The 2 (two) tweets with the most retweets by August 1st will be the winners. (In the event of a tie, we will randomly select winners from the top tweets.)
